Shoppers won’t be the only ones out at the mall this Black Friday. Associated Bank employees will be ringing bells at the Big Red Kettle in Bay Park Square Mall from midnight to 8:00 p.m. on Black Friday to encourage donations on their match day.

Associated Bank will match all Red Kettle donations at over 65 locations in Brown County this “Black Friday,” November 28, 2014. The match will go up to $10,000 and is the first public match of the 2014 Christmas Campaign.

"For the third year in a row, Associated Bank is proud to support The Salvation Army in their 2014 campaign with this $10,000 match,” said Judy Docter, executive vice president - chief human resources officer, Associated Bank. “We truly hope the community takes time to visit the red kettles throughout the holiday season, but especially on November 28, as we want to be sure to meet this $10,000 match that will help to provide basic needs and services to those who need it most.”

The match by Associated Bank will help The Salvation Army of Brown County reach its 2014 Christmas Campaign Goal of $1.1 million. Funds raised through the Christmas Campaign support social service programs of The Salvation Army of Brown County throughout the year.

For those unwilling to venture out into the craziness of Black Friday, donations can be made to The Salvation Army’s Online Red Kettle at All donations made to this Online Red Kettle on Black Friday will be matched as well.
